It’s been an exciting, news-filled summer here are TAB. Thankfully we are staying here at 274 Jane and we're excited for what the year will bring.

The summertime can be an amazing opportunity for reflection and rejuvenation but most importantly it can give you an opportunity to refocus, grow and become stronger!

When things are not going the way you had planned sometimes an amazing unexpected surprise comes your way. This year I was nominated as someone who demonstrates excellence in health and fitness in Canada and made it into the top three finalists for CanFitPro’s Fitness Professional of the Year! This acknowledgement reaffirmed my purpose to inspire and motivate, one person at a time.

Perseverence is key to acheiving a goal. The road is not always smooth or perfect. Effort fueled by passion and purpose cannot go unnoticed for long. So in case you are feeling like your health goals are not achievable and that you should just throw in the towel, know that anything is possible, including those health goals.

Be inspired by your will to try. Open up and see the ‘can’! Jump in and be forgiving if you fall at first (or again and again).

I have learned that at the most unexpected moments, there are others waiting to support you and are ready to cheer you on. You have all done this for me, Let me be your cheering squad. Thank you! See you soon.



If you’ve never come, or it’s been a while, there’s never been a better time.

If you’re new, try a class for free.

Or regardless of if you’re new or not, pick up a pass this month sans HST*. You’ll thank yourself.

* Unlimited passes excluded



This fall we launch TABtv—our YouTube channel

Our goal with TABtv is to bring you insight and inspiration by discussing trends, current events and ideas. We will present interviews with people with similar life situations to TABBIES who have taken action and hope that these will motivate and enlighten all who watch. Will we be talking to you? :)

This was the most inspiring CanFitPro conference I have ever attended. The top award of Fitness Professional of the Year went to my wonderful new friend, Trina Medves, who has a great business called Fit4Females in Stoney Creek. I would again like to thank everyone who supported me on this road. You keep me going.

But even without the potential for an award, I was able to speak to so many great entrepreneurs, authors and influencers over the course of the week. Come to class and I’ll tell you all about it.

Introducing a new class designed to bring a much needed sense of vitality and agility to your body. Improving flexibility will help you increase range of motion and improve how your body functions everyday.

Catch TAB Flexibility
September 21st & 26th
Check this month's calendar


Like everything else if you don’t use it, you lose it. Flexibility is a gift of the young, so as we mature significant changes happen to our muscle tissue.


1. Age
2. Inactivity
3. Gender
4. Over development due to strength training

As we age our flexibility starts to decline, and experts recommend that a stretching regimen should be performed almost everyday. When we work out, we know it's necessary to do a warm up and a cool down, but when we are not about to perform an activity, how many of us will actually just stretch to feel good?


• Your risk of injury decreases when muscles aren't tight
• Your coordination, muscular balance and postural awareness is better
• Low back pain will decrease
• Realignment reduces effort it takes to maintain good posture
• Stress and tension is reduced


• Watch out when stretching in extreme temperatures (too hot or cold).
• Proper alignment is key for optimal results.
• Warm up slowly with fluid movements before holding positions for a long periods.
• Stretching everyday is a great way to wake up the body and relieve stress.
